    Default Ac problem in Civic 2000

    First details of car
    2000 model, Vti, 193xxxkm on odo

    Now!
    Last Sunday(which was a very hot one) I went to airport to see someone off
    Well car was parked under direct sun
    When I came back I started car and after a min turned on ac on full
    I had to stay there(as was waiting for someone)
    After 5 min of ac working fine, suddenly car's rpm went upto 2k and ac stopped cooling.

    Since then while driving car'sac work for 4 or 5min and then stops working then after 7 or 10 min again start working
    And while car is not moving car's ac does not work at all
    Now its 40C outside cant go out without ac
    Can anyone tell me what the problem is and what the solution will be
    And please suggest me some good mechanic in Islamabad who is experienced and charges normal price.

    Thanks

    40C is way HOT your system might have tripped from the over pressure switch on the high side of the compressor. It can also be caused by the condenser fan shutting off for some reason.

    If your car is in 40C heat - then before you get in, open all doors and boot too for 5 minutes to flush the car of hot air so your A/C gets a fighting chance against the heatload.

    compressor does not work in reverse, whoever told you that was probably joking. You should check the fuse box yourself, there is an AC magnet clutch fuse there along with condenser fan etc. You dont need someone else to check them.

    car on idle and you use ac is a little hard on car...when car is moving , the air flow is much better to take the heat off condenser but at stand still positin,it solely depends on condenser fan...

    got it checked from khada market
    mech says that compressor is finished
    plus the condenser is of 95 civic which is not so powerful which lead to the death of compressor
    will get the car fixed tomorrow

    he has quoted me the following prices
    8k for kabli compressor
    4k for new condenser
    4k for piping and other small things plus labour

    so 16k in total

    are these prices okay?

    Default Fyi

    8k for kabli compressor is too much,you can get new chinese one in this price and around 13 you can get brand new original sanden..kabli has no gurantee about how much time will it work for...condenser is priced OK...4k for piping and labour is ok cuz 2500 is mere gas recharge expense..just get condenser a new one !

    @Talal
    there are few threads refering tried and tested AC repair guys in rwp/isb
    take quotation from those people
    AC repair guys are such a rip off and mostly there work lasts 1 season
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....
